Howard Stansbury
Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo and Co, 1852. LIPPINCOTT, GRAMBO & CO., Philadelphia, 1852. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 487 pp., plus 34 lightly tinted lithographs 3 folding, 23 black and white plates, [Howes S884; WCB 219:2; Graff 3947; Field 1940; Goetzmann, p. 468; Sabin 90372; Meisel III, p. 115; MTW 764 and 765;]. Also separate atlas containing two very large maps, 111 x 76 and 72 x 172.5 cm. Atlas and text in one volume . An extensive survey of the Great Basin and a major landmark in the cartography of the American West. In 1846 Stansbury received the orders for the cornerstone of his career: the expedition to the Great Salt Lake in 1849-1850. On 31 May 1849 he left Fort Leavenworth with eighteen men, including Lieutenant John W. Gunnison, artist John Hudson, and Albert Carrington, a leading Mormon official. The company proceeded by way of South Pass in Wyoming to Fort Bridger, where Stansbury engaged Jim Bridger as a guide for the expedition. Dividing his men into two groups, Stansbury explored a new route to the Great Salt Lake by following a path between the Bear River and Echo Canyon trails. The expedition members spent the winter of 1849-1850 in Salt Lake City as guests of the Mormon population there. This, the most intricate part of Stansbury's mission, required diplomacy and tact. Since the Mormon state of Deseret (meaning "honeybee") was the only legally incorporated civil government in that area from 2 July 1849 through 5 February 1851, Stansbury and his men were to some extent visiting a foreign country. Stansbury managed to placate Mormon lea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arboleya, Jose G[arcia]
Habana: Imprenta del Gobierno y Capitania Gerneral por S.M., 1852. First edition. Small octavo, 15 x 10cm, pp 381, [2], with 5 maps and 32 plates. SIGNED by rubrication of the author on the copyright page. The text calls for 30 plates, but our copy has 32. The printing house was that of the Spanish government of the island. This is the first general guide book Cuba - we find nothing remotely approaching it for comprehensiveness - attempting to illustrate all its facets, as the author is at pains to point out. The information includes customs, history, flora and fauna, as well as the price and schedules of paque-boats and ferrocarriles both inter- and intra-island, tobacco and sugar production levels, etc. Fold-out maps are, among others, of the city of Havana, the island of Cuba, and, in color, the system of flag colors that indicated the point of origin of arriving vessels. The b/w plates are of important events or buildings in the island. The rubricated initial of the author is under a notice that no copy of the book without such is to be considered legal or authorized. The book is quite rare, with only a small handful of copies on OCLC; auction records show only one sale, that of the 1858 printing some 45 years ago. Condition is very good - paper fresh, no foxing, hinges sound; the fold-outs are fragile and do have some minor splits; minor wear along top and bottom of spine; minor separation of title page. Nevertheless, very good copy, especially for such a fragile item. [Attributes: First Edition]

Harriet Beecher Stowe
Cleveland, Ohio: John P. Jewett & Company. UNCLE TOM'S CABIN 1852 1st Edition Harriet Beecher Stowe. This two volume 1st edition is an early printing without ennumerated additional printings and with the proper title and copyright pages as pictured. It has been beautifully rebound in full leather with five raised bands and tasteful gilt lettering. The tops of the original pages are gilt. The second volume has some old light water staining as pictured. The first editions of this iconic work are most often found in rather decrepit condition and do not lend themselves to an attractive display of rare books. This pair presents beautifully and represents a rare opportunity. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. [Attributes: First Edition]

CHAMBORD (Henri de Bourbon, comte de)
(1852) Belle pièce autographe , signée "Henry", du premier manifeste du Comte de Chambord, appelé également Henri V, ou Henri d'Artois : "Français ! En présence des épreuves de ma patrie, je me suis volontairement condamné à l'inaction et au silence. Je ne me pardonnerais pas d'avoir pu, un seul moment, aggraver ses embarras et ses périls. Séparé de la France, elle m'est chère et sacrée autant et plus encore que si je ne l'avais jamais quittée. J'ignore s'il me sera donné de servir un jour mon pays, mais je suis bien sûr qu'il n'aura pas à me reprocher une parole, une démarche qui puisse porter la moindre atteinte à sa prospérité et à son repos. C'est son honneur comme le mien, c'est le soin de son avenir, c'est mon devoir envers lui, qui me décident à élever aujourd'hui la voix. Français, vous voulez la monarchie : vous avez reconnu qu'elle seule peut vous rendre avec un gouvernement régulier et stable cette sécurité, de tous les droits, cette garantie de tous les instants, cet accord permanent d'une sage liberté, qui fondent et assurent le bonheur des nations. Ne vous livrez pas à des illusions qui tôt ou tard vous seraient funestes. Le nouvel empire qu'on vous propose ne saurait être cette monarchie tempérée et durable, dont vous attendez tous ces biens. On se trompe et on vous trompe, quand on vous les promet en son nom. La monarchie véritable, la monarchie traditionnelle, appuyée sur le droit héréditaire et consacrée par le temps, peut seule vous remettre en possession de ces précieux avantages et vous en faire jouir à jamais. Le génie et la gloire de Napoléon n'ont pu … [Click Below for Full Description]

J'ai long temps hésité à vous l'envoyer, mais le feuilleton tout encourageant de Jules Janin peut vous tomber par les mains. Peut-être me taxeriez-vous d'ingratitude pour la bienveillance que vous m'avez toujours témoignée ; mieux vaut encore que vous jettiez mon livre au feu. Ne nous faites pas tous deux solidaires des doctrines interrogées dans ce volume, nous avons voulu peindre au vif un coin de ce pauvre 19eme siècle qui n'est comme vous le savez monsieur ni un siècle de foi, ni un siècle d'espérance.

It contains works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser, Julius Klinger, Ernst Deutsch and others, boasting 24 color plates and 176 black-and-white illustrations in all. Although undated, it was probably published in 1914, and certainly suffered from appearing right at the beginning of the First World War, as very few copies have survived. In many ways it can be considered the Maîtres de l'Affiche of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with the addition of scholarly text to complement the images. This is one of the 200 copies bound in linen; 30 additional numbered copies were bound in leather and printed on Japan. scarce. Folio, recased in gray Canapetta linen with large cover label.

It contains works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser, Julius Klinger, Ernst Deutsch and others, boasting 24 color plates and 176 black-and-white illustrations in all. Although undated, it was probably published in 1914, and certainly suffered from appearing right at the beginning of the First World War, as very few copies have survived.

GWYN, NELL). CUNNINGHAM, PETER
Bradbury & Evans, London, 1852. 190 x 123 mm. (7 1/2 x 4 7/8"). xii, 212 pp. FIRST EDITION in book form. Pleasing late 19th century blue morocco, gilt, for J. E. Cornish, Ltd. of Manchester (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, spine gilt in delicately framed compartments with the insignia of Charles II at center, gilt titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece, vignette portrait of Nell's son, the Duke of St. Albans, on title page, and seven illustrations of people and incidents from the text, three of these full-page. A breath of rubbing to front joint, trivial internal imperfections, but A FINE COPY, with few signs of use inside or out. Attractively bound for leading Manchester bookseller and publisher J. E. Cornish, this is the biography of Eleanor ("Nell") Gwyn (1650-87), an orange-seller and actress who became the most famous of Charles II's mistresses. Despite being illiterate, she was a successful comedienne, and she meant so much to the king that he is reported to have said on his deathbed, "Don't let poor Nelly starve." She died of apoplexy only two years after the king. Cunningham's account originally appeared in "The Gentleman's Magazine" in 1851 and is published here for the first time in book form.

GRAY, James.
London, Richard Bentley, 1852. Large 8vo. Original pink cloth, ornamented and lettered in gilt; pp. [2, advertisement], xvi, 350, 12 tinted lithographic plates; binding a little faded and marked, as usual, five dots of sealing wax remnants inside front cover, very light spotting only here and there; a very good and bright copy in the original binding. First edition. 'The public has been so long accustomed to contemplate India, either through the magic glass of imagination, as the land of gorgeous palaces and inexhaustible treasures, or through the scarcely less deceptive halo of military glory as the battle-field of contending armies and opposing dynasties; that we feel some serious misgivings, whilst we invite them to survey her with the natural eye, as she really is, in these sober days of peace, when the "hurly-burly" of our battles lost and won has died away, and all that now is heard to remind us of them, is an occasional shot resounding through the Khyber Pass, and re-echoed from the far-distant mountains of Affghanistan' (Preface). That five years before the 'Indian Mutiny'! The author was a long-term resident of Bombay and Daily Telegraph correspondent, and had enough opportunity to describe daily life in the city and surroundings. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Mormon] [LDS] Parley P. Pratt, Thomas Ward, Wilford Woodruff, Orson Hyde, Orson Spencer, Orson Pratt, Franklin D. Richards and Samuel W. Richards
Manchester & Liverpool, 1852. Volume 1, Number 1 - Volume 14, Number 42. 14 numbered volumes in 89 books. Octavos [22 cm] Eight are in contemporary leather bindings. Volume 2 has been rebound in black buckram. Most very good or better. Bound at the rear of Volume 11 are Sheffield Conference Reports for the Fall of 1849 and for the Spring and Fall of 1850. Volume 5 contains the August 1844 Supplement 'Awful Assassination' which announced the murder of Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum, at the Carthage Jail. The Millennial Star is the longest running LDS periodical, published continuously for 130 years until it was discontinued in 1970 with the overhaul of all the LDS magazines. Inaugurated by the Twelve at the beginning of their great mission to England, its first editor was Parley Pratt who labored alone on the magazine until June 1842 when he was joined by a British convert Thomas Ward. Ward became editor and publisher in November 1842, serving until October 1846 when he was replaced Orson Hyde, president of the British Mission. Thereafter, the British Mission president assumed the editorship. Initially the Star was a monthly. With the issue of June 15, 1845 (vol. 6, no. 1), it was changed to a semimonthly and continued as such until April 24, 1852 (vol. 14, no. 9) when it was issued weekly. It remained a weekly until 1943, when it was changed back to a monthly. "It would be impossible to fully write the history of either the LDS British Mission, the LDS foreign missions in the nineteenth century, or of the Church itself without mention of this important periodical. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arboleya, Jose G[arcia]
Imprenta del Gobierno y Capitania Gerneral por S.M., Habana, 1852. Small octavo, 15 x 10cm, pp 381, [2], with 5 maps and 32 plates. SIGNED by rubrication of the author on the copyright page. The text calls for 30 plates, but our copy has 32. The printing house was that of the Spanish government of the island. This is the first general guide book Cuba - we find nothing remotely approaching it for comprehensiveness - attempting to illustrate all its facets, as the author is at pains to point out. The information includes customs, history, flora and fauna, as well as the price and schedules of paque-boats and ferrocarriles both inter- and intra-island, tobacco and sugar production levels, etc. Fold-out maps are, among others, of the city of Havana, the island of Cuba, and, in color, the system of flag colors that indicated the point of origin of arriving vessels. The b/w plates are of important events or buildings in the island. The rubricated initial of the author is under a notice that no copy of the book without such is to be considered legal or authorized. The book is quite rare, with only a small handful of copies on OCLC; auction records show only one sale, that of the 1858 printing some 45 years ago. Condition is very good - paper fresh, no foxing, hinges sound; the fold-outs are fragile and do have some minor splits; minor wear along top and bottom of spine; minor separation of title page. Nevertheless, very good copy, especially for such a fragile item. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

New York, New York: George P. Putnam, 1852. Now, there's the catch. This book has some condition issues, mainly to do with the condition of the covers. The book is ex-library and the covers were quite worn, to the point where the spine was taped over and crudely hand-lettered. Furthermore, as mentioned, there are paste-down labels of the Berkshire Athenaenum and some minor catalog notations. Inside, the hinges have also been repaired with white library tape (Please be sure to see the photos). The good news is that between the covers, the main text block is in very good condition, without any marks or really even any blemishes. The binding, owing to the repairs is tight and sound. F.

At Sea and various ports, 1852. The marbled boards rubbed; generally in excellent condition; spine of the binding neatly restored.. Small folio, a neatly tabulated and written manuscript comprising 114 pp of Hercules Log [followed by 2 pp partly written and abandoned, at one time concealed by pasting together], and 28 pp of Royalist Log; altogether 22 images (see note); original journal binding of half green roan leather with marbled boards and endpapers. A desirable original midshipman's log of a particularly interesting voyage to Australia, illustrated with most attractive unpublished drawings including a suite of four charts showing a dated track of the voyage, a fine double-page map of "Port Phillip 1853" with detailed soundings, and a series of sixteen coastal drawings, ten of them depicting Australian locations such as Kangaroo Island, Cape Shanck, North Head Port Jackson, Lord Howe and Norfolk Islands. Paynter, a "master's assistant" (approximately midshipman at this time of changing naval ranks), kept a diligent and very complete record of the voyage, carefully illustrating his log with these fine coastal profiles and maps. This fateful voyage was commissioned by the Highlands & Islands Emigration Society, a charitable enterprise which, conscious of the need for settlers in the colonies, sought to resettle impoverished Scots and thus (perhaps not so charitably) release Scots landlords by a clearance of unprofitable tenancies. The Hercules took on some 840 of these emigrants, headed for South Australia and Victoria. They could have been forgiven for thinking themse … [Click Below for Full Description]

With about 65 woodcut illustration figures (including 6 double-page, each printed from 2 separate woodblocks) showing views and diagrams including coastal fortresses, cannons and their carriages, mortars, tools, shot, incendiary projectiles and ships. Contemporary black paper wrappers, bound in the traditional Japanese manner, in a modern Japanese black cloth maru chitsu (wrap-around case). 3, 6, 32; 27; 19; 25; 20 double ll., printed on the outside, plus the title-page and colophon on the first and last pastedowns. Very interesting and beautifully illustrated survey in Japanese of Western naval artillery and gunnery, including coastal defence, directives and guidelines for building coastal fortresses, the construction and use of cannons and mortars, incendiary bombs, and ballistics. The Japanese title can be translated as Coastal gunnery equipment or Coastal gunnery necessities. Around 1820, the shogunate feared the growing Western naval power in Asia and asked Motoki Shoei (1767-1822) to translate the Dutch classic on naval artillery: Gerrit van der Tollen, Het nieuwe licht der bosschieterye, first published in 1701. Motoki's Japanese edition goes beyond the original, however, adding a commentary by Nunokawa Tsuboku as well as many new illustrations, including the most spectacular ones (all of the double-page ones and some of the full-page).

[AUTOGRAPH]. RUGENDAS, Johann Moritz.
[Autograph letter signed ("Mor. Rugendas") to an unnamed recipient].Munich, 21 December 1852. 8vo (22 x 14 cm). In German. With: (2) [AUTOGRAPH]. REGNET, Carl Albert. [Manuscript note about Rugendas, signed ("Regnet")].Munich, 13 January 1869. In German. [4]; [2], [2 blank] pp. A 4-page letter by the widely-travelled German painter Rugendas, famous for his sumptuously illustrated book Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil, which was the fruit of his travels in Brazil (1821-1825). Inspired by Von Humboldt, he sailed again for South America in 1831, travelling through Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. In 1846 he departed for Europe, spending his last years in Munich and Weilheim an der Teck. The King of Bavaria purchased his sketches in exchange for a life annuity of 1200 florins per year. Apparently, Rugendas was still in need of money, since he writes in the present letter that he wants to travel to Prussia to ask the King for a salary "von dem es sich's gut hier leben ließ - ungefähr wie Humboldt in Paris lebte ...". He further mentions the preparation of a "Künstlerball", for which the conductor and opera director Karl Perfall had composed the music. Rugendas refers to the famous "Künsterlfeste", theme parties that took place every year during carnival.The letter may have been addressed to Rugendas's friend Carl Albert Regnet, a District Officer in Munich. This is at least suggested by the added document, which is signed by Regnet and which opens with the remark "Zum Briefe meines lieben unvergeßlichen Freundes Moritz Rugendas möchten ein Paar Zeile am Pl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Synopsis The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement, which adherents believe contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 BC to AD 421. It was first published in March 1830 by Joseph Smith as The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi. According to Smith's account and the book's narrative, the Book of Mormon was originally written in otherwise unknown characters referred to as "reformed Egyptian" engraved on golden plates. Smith said that the last prophet to contribute to the book, a man named Moroni, buried it in Cumorah Hill in present-day New York, then returned to Earth in 1827 as an angel, revealing the location of the plates to Smith, and instructing him to translate it into English for use in the restoration of Christ's true church in the latter days. Critics claim that it was fabricated by Smith, drawing on material a … [Click Below for Full Description]
